It also captures high-quality 1440P eyewitness video recordings and provides advanced driver alerts for forward-collision and lane departure warnings. Plus, it has red-light and speed-camera recognition alerts. You just look ahead and drive.
With your voice, you can command dash Cam 55 to start/stop audio recording, take a still picture or start/stop the travelers’ video capture feature. It’s a fun and easy way to share driving footage and condense hours of driving into minutes of highlights. Moreover, with the VIRB mobile app downloaded on your smartphone, it’s easy to wirelessly sync videos from the Garmin dash cam 55 to your phone and share the videos with friends.

Records High-Quality 1440p HD Video
Dash Cam 55 is an easy-to-use high-definition (HD) driving recorder with a 2.0″ Liquid Crystal Display (LCD). With a wide-angle lens, it captures the entire road and includes GPS for detailed time and location data, pinpointing exactly where and when events happened.
Wirelessly Sync Videos to Your Smartphone
Dash Cam 55 has built-in Wi-Fi so you can wirelessly sync videos to your compatible smartphone after downloading the free VIRB App. This makes it easy to share videos with friends, insurance agencies, or legal authorities.
Your Eyewitness That Never Blinks
Dash Cam 55 features automatic incident detection (G-Sensor) so when an incident is detected, your camera knows to save the current, last and next recordings, thereby preserving a complete record of the event.
Lane Departure Warning
The Lane Departure Warnings alert you if you stray from your lane.
Forward Collision Warning
The Forward Collision Warning alerts if you drive too closely to the car ahead. Some find this annoying in heavy traffic but love it on the open highway, so you might want to turn it off for inner-city driving.
Adding lane departure and forward collision alert sensor as options on a new car would cost you around $3,000.
Voice Control Operation
Command dash cam with your voice, and keep your hands on the wheel. Say ‘OK, Garmin’ to save video, take a picture, start/stop audio recording, and start/stop the Travelapse feature.

Favorable Highly-Relevant Comment:
“I expected it not to work… But after installing it, I am impressed that it works this well. Granted I am more technically inclined, so that helped. I don’t think the product is for the total non-technical person. You must at least have some idea of Bluetooth links and Wi-Fi etc. PS: Have something like Android Auto running to give you access to Bluetooth.” – Vivian Verified purchaser on Amazon February 14, 2018
